Fast-track your recovery, one step at a time.
At Denton Sports & Physical Therapy Center, our therapists work closely with orthopedic physicians on preparing patients for orthopedic surgery and facilitating their post-op recovery. Most patients will require physical therapy following their operation – in some cases, as soon as 24 hours postsurgery. The goal is to restore strength, flexibility and range of motion so that patients regain their optimum level of function and enjoy life once again. Common conditions we manage include:
- Joint replacements – shoulder, knee, & hip
- Joint surgery – all joints
- Spinal surgery – neck & back
- Sports specific – Knee ACL & meniscus, ankle, throwing shoulder/elbow
A broad range of treatments that deliver results.
Clinical studies have shown that active manual physical therapy is highly effective for reducing pain and restoring function quickly after surgery. We use a range of proven, time-tested techniques along with the most advanced manual physical therapy, including soft-tissue mobilization, myofascial release and more. And Denton Sports & Physical Therapy Center is the only practice in the area to offer an aquatic therapy program. Patients who are recovering from orthopedic surgery find they can do range of motion, strengthening and endurance training in water within a short time period of their procedure. By promoting improved circulation through early movement, aquatic therapy results in faster healing of the injured surgical site and helps prevent scar tissue formation.
Other treatments include:
LIDO testing & strengthening – An FDA-approved, noninvasive device to assess motor function
Fluidotherapy – A dry heat therapy that can help relieve pain, improve range of motion, encourage healing and decrease swelling
Phonophoresis – Uses ultrasound to enhance the absorption of topically applied analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents
Iontophoresis – Uses a small electric charge to deliver a medicine or other chemical through the skin – an injection without the needle
Helping you toward a quicker recovery.
Prior to your surgery, there are steps you can take to recover more quickly and successfully following your procedure. Our therapists can help you prepare for surgery by strengthening your muscles and improving your range of motion, without pain or aggravating your condition. Patients who are in better condition often have better outcomes following surgery.
We welcome referrals from medical professionals for pre- and postoperative physical therapy. To learn more about how Denton Sports & Physical Therapy Center can help you or a loved one prepare for or recover from surgery, call 940-566-5714 today.
